In the Mirror
By Lise Gold and Madeleine Taylor
Two women who struggle with their body image find strength in each other.
New Yorker Faith Astor is a successful fashion photographer. Living in Manhattan and parading glamorous parties, she seems to have it all, yet nothing could be further from the truth. When a female personal trainer shows up on New Year’s Day, she regrets booking the kickstart session in a drunken haze, but the woman likes a challenge and won’t take no for an answer.
After years of struggling with an eating disorder, Silva Carter finally has her life back on track. With a careful balance of exercise, healthy living and a strict routine she keeps her anxiety at bay, but breaking her ankle forces her to let go of the control she so desperately needs. As she’s unable to tackle the staircase in her apartment block, her beautiful client Faith offers Silva her spare bedroom for the duration of her recovery, and they soon learn they have more in common than they realized.
Faith is fascinated by her cute trainer, who seems to understand her better than anyone else, and for the first time, she finds herself attracted to a woman. But after a run-in on a high-profile photoshoot, that could be the least of her worries.
